spacers for lowered E92 with Style 189

Hi,

I recently lowered my E92 with Style 189, however, the rear is sunken in too much to the point it looks really odd. If i raise the back up a bit, which spacers would most people go with on these OEM spec rims.

The pic isn't the greatest, but you get the idea.

Being that low in the rear, it should be pretty easy to measure how much room you've got for a spacer.

I will be raising the rear up as it just looks unbalanced. I read most people use 15mm in the rear on the E92 with no rubbing, but then i saw that their rear weren't tucking. That's why i wanted to make sure if 15mm will do the job on a slightly more lowered rear. Not getting much feedback from this thread though

so you would suggest 12mm? Will that still give a flush look in the rear?

+1 I'm currently on stock 19's with 18mm spacers in the rear. No rubbing at all, but I also have fenders rolled.

Thanks for all the response. I raised my rear over the weekend. Do you guys think I should go 12mm or 15mm in the rear?

A 15mm spacer puts you around the same as 9.5 et33. That said you shouldn't rub. It still won't really be flush though.
